With the Tribe's victory over the boys from Motown this afternoon, the Yanks' magic number for the AL Wild Card is now down to 6.  Thank you, Tribe.  The Tigers are finished.

Pettitte has more career wins against the O's than any other team (20-6, 3.73 in 32 games), but he is so far winless against them in 2007 (0-1, 3.21 ERA in 2 starts).  Brian Burres has pitched well against the Yanks (1-0, 2.53 ERA in 5 games).

Yanks are 16-19 this season against LHP.  

Suddenly, Doug Mientkiewicz is on a bit of a roll .462 (6-13, HR, 6 RBI) since he was activated on Sept 1st.
